Daylight Dawns August 17th

We are flipping the switch to Daylight on August 17th. 

D2L moose thinks Daylight is so bright he needs shades and wrote a chalkboard message asking if Bloomsburg students are ready for Daylight

The Daylight Experience is coming to BOLT to bring a new, modern, responsive design to BOLT. BOLT will display better on mobile devices and will have other user experience improvements, including a new My Courses widget.

We will also be updating our Student Support information at Help documentation will be updated to match the new look and feel in BOLT.

Gear Up for 2017 Fall

Here are some answers to common questions to help you get ready for the upcoming semester!

Can’t see your courses?
Students aren’t added to Fall courses until August 17th. After that, if you add a course in MyHusky, it takes 24-48 hours for you to be added to the course in BOLT.

Students won’t see courses until instructors make them active in BOLT, and some instructors won’t use BOLT. If you have questions about when your instructor is giving you access to BOLT, please contact your instructor.

Can’t login to BOLT?
BOLT uses your HuskyID credentials. If you can’t login to BOLT, try logging into your email. If you can’t login to your email, you may need a password reset. If you can, are you a transfer or Grad student? They don’t have access until August 17th!

Using Clickers?
If you are in a course using clickers, register your clicker via the Clicker Registration link in BOLT (under University Resources). You MUST register via the link.
